2014 Farm Share Program
The best way to get the freshest, most delicious, and most local food is to subscribe to the The Urban Farmer Farm Share program.
Each week, we gather for you the best local seasonal, fruits and vegetables into a convenient “share” that provides your family with a week’s worth of great taste and nutrition. Plus, we include convenient and tasty recipes, so if there is something new to you in the share, you can quickly prepare it like a pro.
Our Farm Share Program is based on the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model. In basic principle, it means the community supports the farmer. For direct access to the farmer and direct access to fresh local food, the community can sign up as members.
Members purchase a “share” with the benefit of receiving a portion of the harvest each week during the season, usually harvested only hours before pickup. The advantage to the farmers is they know exactly how much to plant and can finance their operations efficiently.
In order to provide variety and quality for our Farm Share members, our shares generally have a selection of fruits and vegetables from several farms. During the prime South Florida growing seasons (fall and spring) we source primarily from partner farms in the Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade County areas. In the off-season (summer) we reach a bit farther because the sub-tropical heat makes growing very challenging for local farmers.
Our partner farms are all farmers we know and trust to use safe and sustainable natural growing practices. And sourcing from several local farms allows new members to start enjoying local food at any time during the year.
